Vanilla 2.6 is here
! It includes security fixes and requires PHP 7.0. We have therefore ALSO released Vanilla 2.5.2
with security patches if you are still on PHP 5.6 to give you additional time to upgrade.
Is there a way put vanilla in read-only mode?
I've wanted to temporarily turn off things like new user registration, creating new discussion, commenting, anything that can write something to database. So users can only read discussions and nothing else. I think it will be a handy thing to be able to do.
